"Stop by the Met" Metropolitan Museum of Art Tip by Gage17

Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York City: 194 reviews and 382 photos

  Favorite spot to spend an afternoon
by Gage17

My favorite museum in New York. With over two millions pieces in its collection, there is always something new to see at the Met. When I lived in New York, I used to go to the museum every week to explore a new room and visit my favorite works. It is a massive place, so you can choose to focus on one area of interest or wander the great halls to find what lies within the next room. Check the website for current admission fees and opening hours.
